Plat Books of Missouri Counties Collection
In 1930 W.W. Hickson and Co. of Rockford, Illinois published plat books of townships in counties throughout Missouri. Documenting the ownership and locations of plots of land in Missouri counties, the 111 items in the collection are an invaluable research tool for genealogists, urban historians, and preservationists. The plat books show the location, size, and name of the owner for each plot of land within the townships. Holdings: 111 plat books
The plat books are freely available in the University of Missouri Digital Library. The catalog records can be accessed through the heading Plat Books of Missouri (University of Missouri–Columbia. Libraries). This collection is stored offsite. Please request materials at least 48 hours in advance.
